Let’s talk gardening grants…

Yes, that’s a real thing.  You can write a grant that helps you cover the expenses of a garden at your library!  WOW!  Okay, we’re running out of time…so let’s get crackin’ on those applications…

Here are two coming up soon (found through kidsgardening.org – a fantastic website!)

March 1 – 2012 Mantis Award (to receive a Mantis tiller/cultivator)

April 1 – 2012 Midwest Garden Grant (for those living in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin)

Regional/Local Grants

This is the time when grant applications are about to be due.  I found an astonishing amount of regional and local gardening and food education grants across the country.  Try search terms like your city/region/state name and ‘gardening grants 2012’.

Many local branches of Master Gardeners offer local grants!  Reach out to your local group if you don’t already have a working relationship with them!
